Hooray! The Flash is back!

Last we saw, The Flash was up against a former S.T.A.R. Labs employee by the name of Hartley Hathaway a.k.a. Pied Piper (Andrew Mientus), who happened to know a few of Dr. Wells’ secrets. He also knows what happened to Ronnie Raymond.

In this week’s episode, Caitlin decides that she needs to move on, and so does Barry. She takes him out to a local karaoke bar to, you know, sing and make new friends 🙂

Unfortunately Caitlin strikes out, but Barry meets a girl named Linda Park (Malese Jow, The Vampire Diaries & Star-Crossed), a local sports reporter for the Central City Picture News, the same place that Iris works! Dun-dun-dunnnn! Anyways, he asks her out and Iris seems to have a reaction she wasn’t quite expecting. We know, Iris, deep down you truly love Barry, you just haven’t admitted it to yourself yet.

Meanwhile, Cisco is contemplating taking up Hartley’s offer while the team searches for Shawna, a new meta-human with teleportation powers, played by Britne Oldford.

The official synopsis for “Crazy For You”:

LOVE IS IN THE AIR — Caitlin (Danielle Panabaker) decides that she and Barry (Grant Gustin) need to move on from Ronnie (guest star Robbie Amell) and Iris (Candice Patton) and find new loves so she takes him for a night out at the local karaoke bar. Caitlin doesn’t have any luck making a love connection but Barry meets Linda Park (guest star Malese Jow), a sports reporter for the Central City Picture News, and asks her out on a date. When Barry tells Iris he has a date, Iris is surprised by her reaction. Meanwhile, Cisco (Carlos Ramon) considers Hartley’s (guest star Andy Mientus) dangerous offer and the team searches for Shawna (guest star Britne Oldford), a meta-human with teleportation powers, who just busted her boyfriend Clay (guest star Micah Parker) out of Iron Heights. When Henry (guest star John Wesley Shipps) snoops around in an attempt to help Joe (Jesse L. Martin) and Barry solve the crime, he ends up in the infirmary after getting roughed up by inmates.
